LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College softball team will host their annual winter elite clinic on Saturday, February 16 in the Gray Cage from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 

The clinic is geared towards the serious high school player (Grades 9-12) and costs $100 for position players and $115 for pitchers and catchers. The Bates coaching staff and players will provide individual instruction focusing on defense, hitting and game strategy. Skill specific pitching and catching instruction is available.

Players will be broken up into age and ability level for group work and during the games. Space is limited and the clinic is filled on a first come, first serve basis.

Each player must bring her own softball equipment. Players should bring a glove, bat, cleats, hat, and helmet if they have one and any other equipment they feel necessary to compete.

Following the 10am-1pm skills session, the Bates coaching staff and players will provide a campus tour and a Q & A session.
